      • Akimoto: I like unique stuff, like Puff Daddy and Chumbawumba. But you know what people remember is? Is Frank Sinatra—New York, New York, My Way—the classics. These dishes, they're classics.
        Kaga: We haven't tried the new Iron Chef's dishes yet.
        Akimoto: Yes, well I hear he's like Prince and that's what I'm looking forward to.

        Puff Daddy refers to hip-hop mogul and trend setter Sean 'P. Diddy' Combs.

        Chumbawumba is the name of a one-hit wonder band. Their enormous hit was "Tub Thumping".

        Frank Sinatra is a legendary crooner/actor. He was a member of the 'Rat Pack'.

        Prince is a pop-rock musician with numerous hits. Perhaps, his biggest was the album Purple Rain, considered to be in the top 25 of influential albums (Billboard).

      • During Morimoto's introduction, Kaga says that he has many celebrity followers. Then, a picture is shown of Morimoto and American film star, Sylvester Stallone.
